PYROLURIA: PYROLE DISORDER (PD)

Pyrole Disorder (PD) is a disease leading to the inability to regulate the stress response->severestress & anxiety states.

The disease can be genetic or epigenic (acquired genetic problem). Oxidative stress & inflammatory states trigger or exacerbate PD. Pyrole accumulation leads to a double B6/ pyridoxine & zinc deficiency-> both depression & anxiety

Gluten Part 3- Herbs

As mentioned in Part 1, gluten sensitivity is easier to diagnose and treat than gluten intolerance in Western medicine.

Gluten intoleranceis the inability to digest gluten, a family of storage proteins found in all grains.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

I wrote this long article because many women were approaching me for help related to complaints of fatigue. Yet, they did not present with the Chinese medicine diagnosis I expected. Some were self-treating with substances [including Chinese herbals] that were dis-harmonious with their constitution, making accurate diagnosis and treatment difficult. While women are mostly impacted by CFS, 20% of sufferers are men who remain undiagnosed [Clayton, 2015, p.

Brain Food-As-Medicine

Chinese medicine addresses age-related cognitive decline by harmonizing the mind, and safeguarding the Three Treasures (jing qi, and shen). This is loosely equivalent to nourishing the nerves, regulating hormones, supporting adrenal glands, and protecting genetic endowments (jing). Food-as-medicine is self-care in these regards.
